All paint should be used according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
In a well-ventilated space, cover a flat surface with a drop cloth or tarp.
Before starting, read the Krylon® labels for safety, application, and dry time instructions.
If paint or rust is flaking off the surface of the file cabinet, use a wire brush or sandpaper to remove it. Wipe down the surface to remove any debris.
Using painter's tape, cover the drawer handles to protect their shiny silver finish from overspray.
Remove the drawers to paint them separately from the file cabinet.
Spray paint the drawers and cabinet using Krylon® Shimmer Metallic in Candy Grape.
Remove painter's tape from drawer handles when the file cabinet is dry to touch to avoid chipping or peeling.
Allow the file cabinet and drawers to fully dry.
Once cabinet and drawers are fully dry, put the drawers back into the cabinet.
Style with colorful notebooks, a fun tape dispenser, and your best drawing!
Wood and spray paint are a great combo. Go big and revive a piece of furniture. Go small and revamp a decorative box.
